Spring 2013 Grand Traverse Photo Album

It was lovely to travel last weekend from Grand Rapids to Traverse City. I watched the spring colors wake up at 70 miles per hour. There was a marked difference in the trees from just Friday to Sunday.

As I prepare two winery blog posts to be posted soon, I am sharing photos of the whole trip below.

Always an excellent lunch at Spaghetti Jim's on Airport Rd.
A trip to Leelanau Cheese Company is always on my schedule.

The vineyard for the newest winery on Old Mission Peninsula - Hawthorne Winery.
I had a sneak preview of one of the new wineries on Leelanau Peninsula. 
Got my zzzzzzz on at the Bellaire B & B.

Looking forward to reading the book that The Chocolate Lady gave me. It is The Guide to Chocolate in the Grand Traverse Region by Barbara Disborough. It is a comprehensive guide to area chocolatiers and includes recipes and coupons. Awesome!
Chocolate ice cream at the Chocolate Festival.

It's always nice to see a tower of chocolate, isn't it?
My first trip to Om Cafe will NOT be my last. Great food - lots of local!

I hadn't been to Right Brain's new location until last weekend.
